(Jules Dassin, 1949). Jules Dassins strongest American movie is an exercise in film gris proletariat expressionism that turns a quick job undertaken by a free-lance trucker into a journey to the end of the night. Excellent perfs including Valentina Cortese as a sultry hooker and Lee J. Cobb inventing the villain hed later play in On the Waterfront.
